5 Pre-Golf Super Shakes
You need a great start to your golf round with the right fuel. A nutrient-packed, satisfying meal sets you up for better decisions; muscle support, steady blood sugar and sustained energy for a few hours. These super shakes contain the nutritional components you’ll need to play your best. I’ve enjoyed a daily super shake meal since 2003. That’s 13 years of shake-making, time-saving and first-hand knowledge of the convenience and amazing health benefits of blended meals.
Getting a full protein serving with fruits and vegetables dictates later success. Ingesting powerful mineral and vitamin containing carbohydrates make you are less likely to experience a slump. Adding fat gives you sustained energy and helps manage inflammation along with the antioxidants from the fruits and vegetables. Blended meals from single foods replace refined/processed foods like cereals, breads and sugars which promote inflammation, cravings and muscle loss.
Tips: Keep your freezer stocked with frozen pieces of fruit, vegetables and even avocado pieces for convenience. To make the shake, put the frozen fruit and vegetable pieces in the blender first; add the protein powder and water to just under the level of ingredients then blend. Pour contents into the to-go cup then add your topper. When using avocado pieces or nut butters it is best to blend with the main ingredients instead of as a topper.
